For 1958, Chevrolet models were redesigned longer, lower, and heavier than their 1957 predecessors. The first ever production Chevrolet big block V8, the 348 cu in (5,700 cc), was now an option. Chevrolet’s design for the year fared better than its other GM offerings, and lacked the overabundance of chrome found on Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles, Buicks and Cadillacs. Complementing Chevrolet’s front design was a broad grille and quad headlights that helped simulate a ‘Baby Cadillac’; the wagon’s tail received a fan-shaped alcove on both side panels, similar to the sedan’s, but wagon’s housed single tail lights instead of dual (triple on Impala) to accommodate the tailgate.
The sedan delivery was a two-door model that normally looked like a station wagon with panel sides instead of rear side windows. It carried a Delray script at the leading edge of the rear fender panel and shared Delray trim with other passenger cars in that series.
This wonderful Sedan Delivery is a very rare sight on UK roads but is all the more of a head-turner for it. Meticulously maintained by its current owner the car has been consistently looked after and benefitted from much work over the years of careful ownership. Powered by a 327 cu. Inch Corvette V8 engine with new Turbo 350 automatic gearbox, this car has been sensibly upgraded with electric power steering and a dual brake system with front disc brakes and new rear brakes. There is an aluminium radiator and the body is described to be very good condition.
